Lyrics

I heard you on the wireless back in fifty two
Lying awake intent at tuning in on you
If I was young it didn't stop you coming through
Oh-a oh-a

They took the credit for your second symphony
Rewritten by machine and new technology
And now I understand the problems you can see

Oh-a oh-a
I met your children
Oh-a oh-a
What did you tell them?

Video killed the radio star
Video killed the radio star
Pictures came and broke your heart

Oh-a-a-a oh
And now we meet in an abandoned studio
We hear the playback and it seems so long ago

And you remember the jingles used to go
Oh-a oh-a
You were the first one
Oh-a oh-a

You are the last one
Video killed the radio star
Video killed the radio star
In my mind and in my car

We can't rewind we've gone too far
Oh-a-aho oh
Oh-a-aho oh
Video killed the radio star
Video killed the radio star

In my mind and in my car
We can't rewind we've gone too far
Pictures came and broke your heart
Put the blame on VTR
You are a radio star
You are a radio star
Video killed the radio star
Video killed the radio star
Video killed the radio star
Video killed the radio star
Video killed the radio star
Video killed the radio star
Video killed the radio star
Video killed the radio star
VIdeo killed the radio star
Video killed the radio star
Video killed the radio star
